in securities in u.s. stocks and later on in asia, what have you, could be some concern are it looks like this might be falling through. remember, a short-term reaction to any deal is just that. keep in mind after the stock market fell close to 800 points in october 2008, greg, when we didn't get a tarp deal or tarp rescue through congress when president bush was in the white house then we hastily reconvened, got a new tarp deal, more to its liking just to try to prevent another selloff. we did prevent a one day panic but just a few months later the dow had lost close to 4,000 points. so, there is such a thing as a short-term reaction and a long-term reaction. and we don't even have a short-term deal right now. >> it is funny how a near market crash can concentrate the minds of politicians in washington almost overnight. look, help me out here.
